It is impressive to arrive there and find all the potteries. Once you start really looking into each shop, you will realize that they pretty much all have the same. I understand it's the traditional style of Safi but I cannot differentiate all the pottery...More

It's a nice place to visit. Unfortunately the Safi museum was close for a certain reason. It nice to visit the coline des potiers if you are a first time visitor to Morocco, but if not it might not be that interesting.
